I appreciate and thank PICCO Engineering and staff for the excellent level of professional service received for our recent project in Caledon. An unexpected revision requested by the Town required newly approved drawings resubmitted within an extremely tight timeline. It was a challenging situation and PICCO delivered the required documents on time; much appreciated!

The Ark of Return Permanent Memorial to the Victims of Slavery and The Transatlantic Slave Trade has a complex geometry comprised of a triangulated stainless steel frame clad in triangular white marble panels. The level of precision and coordination required to fabricate and install the memorial by our entire design and construction team was extraordinary. PICCO Engineering’s design of the structural support details within a limited time frame was critical to the successful installation and public unveiling of the project by United Nations Secretary General
Ban Ki Moon.

Very Responsive and
After various failed attempts of hiring an Engineering firm for the stone cladding system here at the Lewis Center for the Arts Project, we were introduced to PICCO Engineering. During our first meeting with PICCO Engineering, it was clear that PICCO was the right firm with the right people, knowledge and experience. During our first visit, PICCO, after reviewing preliminary information provided by Turner came to the table with engineering solutions for the stone cladding system. We gave PICCO a very aggressive schedule which PICCO met time and time again. During the process PICCO was very responsive and quick with solutions. Due to PICCO’s experience and knowledge, we were able to complete the Stone cladding Engineering and move on to the installation in a very effective and efficient manner which helped the overall schedule.Turner is very pleased with the work performed by PICCO and look forward to working with them again in the future.
PICCO Engineering has been a valuable member of our consultant team for many years. PICCO is professional, timely, thorough and accurate in every aspect of their projects. The degree to which they perform their work assists us immeasurably in coordinating, scheduling and submitting permit drawings for our projects.
